biking reduces sexual sensibility?


we recently stumpled upon a news article (Blick / german language) stating that biking can reduce sexual sensitivity…

to summarize the article

  • for women: reduced sensitivity in the genital area after one month riding at least 16 km per week
    recommendation: saddle should be lower than handlebar for correct female ergonomics
  • for men: numbness in the genital area and erectile dysfunction
    recommendation: saddle should be higher than handlebar for correct male ergonomics

hmm… either the “scientific study” is not 100% correct or we accidentally always had the “correct” ergonomics on our bikes… but we never experienced any of the above mentioned problems… :-)
